the D16Z6 would be the worst option for a motor. why? because it lacks the torque to move this car. this will cause you to change your driving habbits by pushing that motor harder. in turn giving you really bad gas mileage. lol!
the best bang for your buck with this car is the JDM B21A. it is rated at 147hp and 140ft. lbs. and it doesn't have the FRM sleeves so it won't burn oil if you don't romp on it every chance you get. and if you're lucky enough to get the tranny with it. well it has an LSD. only prob with this is it's an automatic. go figure. otherwise you can do the USDM B21A1. 140hp and 135ft. lbs. but it has the FRM sleeves.
if however you come across a huge sum of money then do the H22A swap. or just buy a new car.
If you'd rather hear it from someone with a little authority, I have just as little as anyone else.

the P28 is the ecu i have for it. i have a hayne's repair manual for the 92-95 civic and del sol. the same manual covers both cars. it has both ecu diagrams in the back. that's how i knew A4 is the vtec selnoid. i haven't gotten past the "A" connector. i'm sure i'll find the other one.

Re: your 89 Prelude
Let me enlighten you a little on your 3rd Gen Lude.
The only engine worth swapping into your Lude is the H22. All other B series motors are much harder to make work into the low profile chassis of our 3rd gens.
For more power you will either want to Turbo Charge it, or swap the H22 into your car.
Let me help you with some info that I put together:
This is what I was able to have produced for our cars. The H22 Billet Mount kit
Produced by www.azracemachine.com
Please note this is the project car, and is still under construction, we took care of the clearance issues, but you will need to be considerate of how low you will drop your car. We are still working on the Powersteering, and A/C brackets.
